How easy it is to have your App and Website

As you read this article you will realize how easy it is to have the Mobile App and Internet Page constantly updated with all of its new contents.

This feature is available for any subscription to Kyrios ChMS, from a Diocese to a catechist who simply wants to share information and content with everyone they may be interested in. Using Kyrios, this is so easy that you will never need help again.

First, you must have a valid subscription and with the Active Page module, to do so and if you are not already a subscriber, you must subscribe to one of the following options:

What do you need to know to understand the logic of operation?

First of all you should understand some concepts of how to combine the various elements that allow the functioning of an Internet page in Kyrios.

Thus, in the module of the Internet page we have:

  • Sections
  • settings
  • Menus
  • Contents
  • Events

Before we even advance to the settings of a website, we must keep in mind the structure we want. In this sense we should prepare the necessary sections.

First you must access Kyrios (https://portal.kyrioscloud.com) and use your access data to enter:

Sections

The logic of the organization of the contents is based on sections.

Sections are a file style, which serves to classify the contents. These sections can then be linked to content and menus, so we can create content listings in a very simple and practical way.

By default not a subscription has no section created, so we must create as many sections as we need.

To begin with, we must create at least the news and event sections. These will be the sections that will serve to associate all the news to be published on the website and in the app, as well as the events. But you can create many more, for example, at parish parties it may make sense to create a section that adds all the content associated with that party, and then that section may be highlighted on the page and in the app.

To create a section you should follow the following steps (in this case we will create the news section):

  1. Open the sections by clicking on Internet Page -> Sections 
  2. Then click on  
    1. description – section name;
    2. reference – name of the section without spaces and without special characters;It will open the creation window, where you must fill in the fields:
    3. At the end click save.

You should create all the sections you need.

But do not worry, you can create it whenever you need it.

 

Settings

Now that you have the created sections (you must have at least the news section created), you must make the main settings of your Internet / App Page.

To do this, you must:

  1. Access the website settings found on the Internet Page -> Settings: 
  2. Here you must complete the following data:
    1. Compete Url: you must enter the address without spaces and without special characters that you want for your website. We recommend that it be the name of the parish. This name will be associated with the kyrios domain, as an example if you put this field demoonline the final address will be https://demoonline.kyrioschms.com;
    2. E-mail: the e-mail address will be used to receive the data that can be filled in the contact form of the Internet page;
    3. Share content (news / events) in the Kyrios mobile application: You must enable this option in order for the Kyrios App to display your Internet page. Having this option enabled you can instruct your community to install the Kyrios App, so they can set your subscription as the default, making the App as your App;
    4. Url Facebook: if you have, you should put here the address of your Facebook page;
    5. Twitter Url: if you have, you should put here the address of your Twitter page;
    6. Url Youtube: if you have, you must put here the address of your Youtube page;
    7. Url Soundcloud: if you have, you must put here the address of your Soundcloud page;
    8. Main section – news section: you must select the section that you have set up to associate the news (if you have not yet created the sections, here’s how to create it);
    9. Right Section – Content of the Parish Office: Select the content that will present the schedule and operating information of the services;
    10. Right Section – Content of the Eucharist: Select the content that will present the time of the Eucharist (if applicable);
    11. Right Section – Content of Confessions: Select the content that will present confession time (if applicable);
    12. Right Section – Content of Patient Visits: Select the content that will present the schedule of visits to patients (if applicable);
    13. At the end click Save to save your changes.

    .

Menus

At this time, if you have activated the “Share contents” option, you can now open the Kyrios application and you will find your subscription so you can mark it as “Next” to keep up with all the news.

At this moment we will create the main menu of the Page and the App. Let’s go to the Internet Page -> Menus:

Now click on  or in  if you prefer to edit an existing menu.

In this example we will create a new menu, called The institution and within this menu I want to find some sub-menu items, like this example:

The institution:

  • Who we are
  • News
  • News
  • Schedule
  • Contacts

To create a new main menu item, I will then click

and then complete the form as follows:

  • Title – will have the name of the menu: The institution
  • Section – in this case as I do not intend to open any content, only the submenu should be presented, I leave it blank
  • Content – in this case, as I do not intend to open any content, only the submenu should be presented, I leave it blank
  • Layout – in this case as I do not intend to open any content, just have to display the sub-menu, I leave blank
  • Sub-menus – this is where we will create the menu items, which will be associated with contents or sections (if there are no contents or sections, they must be created and later associated).
    • Who We Are – let’s create the submenu, for this click on the icon  which is next to the order column and will pop up our sub-menu line, which we will fill as follows:
      • Order – here as is our first element (this field is to order the order of the elements) let’s put the number 1
      • Title – About us
      • Section – is blank because we want to display content
      • Content – we select the content that has already been created with the presentation of who we are
      • Layout – in this case as it is a page to present a content we must select “News details”;
    • Valences – let’s create the submenu, for this click on the icon  which is next to the order column and will pop up our sub-menu line, which we will fill as follows:
      • Order – 2
      • Title – Valencias
      • Section – is blank, because we want to present a content, however if we wanted to present a listing with the various valences and where each valency would have its presentation, here we should select the section
      • Content – we select the content that has already been created with the presentation of the
      • Layout – in this case as it is a page to present a content we must select “News details”;
    • News – let’s create the submenu, for this click on the icon  which is next to the order column and will pop up our sub-menu line, which we will fill as follows:
      • Order – 3
      • Title – News
      • Section – You should select the News section (or the one you created to display the news)
      • Content – is blank because we want to display the content listing of a section
      • Layout – in this case as it is a page to present a list of contents we must select “News Listing”;
    • Agenda – let’s create the submenu, for this click the icon  which is next to the order column and will pop up our sub-menu line, which we will fill as follows:
      • Order – 4
      • Title – Agenda
      • Section – You should select the Agenda section (or the one you created to display the Agenda)
      • Content – is blank because we want to display the content listing of a section
      • Layout – in this case as it is a page to present a list of contents of type agenda we must select “Agenda Listing”;
    • Contacts – let’s create the submenu, for this click on the icon  which is next to the order column and will pop up our sub-menu line, which we will fill as follows:
      • Order – 5
      • Title – Contacts
      • Section – is left blank, because we want to submit a contact form
      • Content – is left blank because we want to submit a contact form
      • Layout – in this case as it is a page to present a contact form we must select “Contact form”. On this page the subscription contacts will appear and if you prefer you can choose to associate normal content with all contacts instead of using a typed form;

The final aspect is this:

We must create the various menu items that are required for the website.

After this step the Website and App are fully configured and from this moment, we only need to add content and events. So this is the simple and routine task that any user can do. By the way, did you know that you can create and manage your own users by defining what everyone has access to? Here’s how.

Contents

Whenever you need to enter a message, news, presentation content, etc … you must do it in the contents in Internet Page -> Contents:

To insert a simple content such as the content Who we are , the steps and data to fill out are as follows:

First click  , then fill in the following fields:

Required:

  • Title: Who we are
  • Highlight: You should select a featured image for your content. The image should be on your computer.
  • content: it is mandatory to have something in the content for it to be saved. This should contain all the content to be displayed.

Optional:

  • Sections: If it was a content to appear in a section should select the section, as is the case of news, in the case of loose content it is not necessary to have a section.
  • Summary: You should put a phrase that helps visitors understand the substance of the content. Very useful in the case of news.

Events

Events are similar to the contents and can be managed at in Internet Page -> Events:

To enter a simple event such as the scheduling of a meeting of catechists , the steps and data to fill out are as follows:

First click  , then fill in the following fields:

Required:

  • Title: Meeting of Catechists
  • Schedule: here you must set the start date and time and end date and time
